Reprinting this from a Reader’s Digest:
These are things not to do when interviewing. These were provided by hiring managers:
- Candidate specified that his availability was limited because Friday, Saturday and Sunday was “drinking time”.
- Candidate explained an arrest by stating, “We stole the pig, but it was a really small pig.”
- Advertising is a tough business. Which may be why one prospective adman wrote a cover letter boasting, “I am getting to my goal, slowly but surly.”
